Steve and I ended up on a very cold and windy Crosby Beach on saturday - but we were both on a cliché avoidance mission, so were determined to do something we'd not seen before with the statue.

We've all seen and taken fantastic sunset shots with the statue refelcted in the sand, so why bother reinventing a wheel when you can try crafting a littel different?

Anyway, this is me running around on the sand as Steve hit my remote release to capture lots of me.

I've left most of the big me's off as they mask the little mes.

Lots of work in photoshop here, so hope someone likes it!

This is why I was thinking of taking a tripod on Saturday - just the Gorillapod.

Maybe do it at a bar, have several of one of us sat talking at the bar to each other Wink

I'm sorry but if Steve hit the remote release then surely this is his shot and not yours, since he was the photographer - poor form claiming someone elses work Tongue

picky or what Wink

we both set the shots up on our own cameras, then go the other to hit the cable release when we said "now".

so cheers for this one Steve Wink i'll take credit, and you can take credit for yours.... which I took... err

Great stuff. I like the impression that you're entertaining the statue rather than the opposite... maybe even more so if you were posed more towards the statue than the camera, but I guess that's only my reading of the image anyway! Like it a lot. Tommy

This is a real gem. Especial credit for the blurred moving Ades and the Ades pointing at other Ades.

You could do a whole series of these, performing different activities in front of the statue (reading to it, worshiping it, sitting on a deckchair ignoring it, ...) and paying homage to famous photographs (the Abbey Road cover, Behind the Gare St Lazare, Capa's shots of the Normandy landings, ...).

Right, that should keep you busy for a few months. Get to it! Smile

I've photographed the Gormley Statues a couple of times and it's refreshing to see someone use a bit of imagination for a change. Excellent work and very well processed. The votes speak for themselves...
